WACO (AP) - Testimony was expected to wrap up Thursday in the federal trial of a soldier accused of planning to bomb a Texas restaurant filled with Fort Hood troops.

Jurors in Army Pfc. Naser Jason Abdo’s trial were to see evidence from an FBI expert who built a device from the same materials that Abdo reportedly had.

Prosecutors have said Abdo had started building the bomb when he was detained at a motel near the Texas Army post in July. Defense attorneys say no device was ever constructed.

The 22-year-old faces up to life in federal prison if convicted of attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction and other charges.

In a recorded jail visit with his mom, Abdo says he wanted to seek justice for those in Iraq and Afghanistan.
